Well I most be doing all right, last year was my first year of duck hunting and I got a band off of a black duck. Then just this afternoon I picked up three, from two woodies, both males. One of them had two bands, one was a reward band worht 100$ and the other just had one.

I've been at it for 30 years and have 43 bands recovered in central Iowa. 30 from Canda Geese all of which are local except 3, one of those was a black neck collar from Minneapolis, 8 years old, the other 2 from southern Iowa. The other bands include 2 snow geese, 1 yellow neck collar from about 200 miles inside the arctic circle and the other 11yrs old from nw terr. 4 mallards from Ill.,Manitoba,Sask.(2). The remaining 7 are local Wood Ducks. One of those was wearing the band for a year before being shot. I've been working with DNR pesonel banding Woodies for 12 yrs and this summer we recaptured a hen in the same trap she was caught and banded in as a juv. in 1996(8 yr old homebody). So far as we know she's still flying!

We got two Drake mallards with leg bands today. By "we" I mean my buddys, cuz I got stuck in a poopy spot. That and I spooked two Drakes when I slipped off the rock I was sitting on when they came into the dekes.

Got a band off a pintail already this year she was also sporting a radio transmitter the type with the inteannea between its wings. But other than that i only have two the one off the pintail, and one off of a canadian goose.
